GiNiT Thyme Chicken Schnitzel

Serves 2

Ingredients:

1 large chicken breast

2 tsp GiNiT Thyme

2 Tbsp gluten free all purpose flour or wheat flour

½ tsp Himalayan salt

1 large egg, beaten

Crumbs to coat

To tenderise:

Cut the chicken breast in half and place in a bag or cover with cling film. Flatten with a meat mallet to an even thickness. Do the same to the other piece of chicken. Evenly sprinkle half a teaspoon of GiNiT Thyme on each side of the chicken pieces, rub in. Place on a plate covered with clingfilm and leave to rest/marinade in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Prepare the breading ingredients:

On one plate / flat container, mix the flour and salt together. In the next container place the beaten egg. In the third, place the crumbs.

Combining:

After 30 minutes, dip one piece of chicken at a time into the flour – coating on all sides. Then dip into the egg to coat all over, let excess egg drip off before placing in the container with the crumbs. Coat evenly and set aside. Repeat the steps for second piece of chicken.

In a frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Fry each piece of chicken for 3-4 minutes a side, until golden. Drain on paper towel.

Serving suggestion:

We served our tasty schnitzel with golden potato chips and baby gem squash filled with creamy spinach & feta.

GiNiT Thyme & Red Onion Marmalade Chicken

Ingredients:

3 Tbsp butter

3 large red onions – thinly sliced

¼ cup sugar

2 Tbsp GiNiT Thyme

3 chicken breasts (+-1kg) – cut into strips

½ cup water

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

To Cook:

In a large thick bottomed frying pan, heat butter over medium heat until almost sizzling. Add the onions, mix to coat with butter, sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the sugar, cook until the onions start to caramelise (5+ minutes). Sprinkle 1 Tbsp GiNiT Thyme over the onions; add the chicken strips. Turn the chicken frequently to cook on all sides, then add the water and balsamic vinegar, mix well. Allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the excess liquid has evaporated. Stir in the remaining tablespoon of GiNiT Thyme as a finishing spice.

Serving suggestion:

Make a decadent wrap: smear plain cream cheese on a wrap (we used gluten free wraps), add shredded lettuce, halved sweet cherry tomatoes and rocket. Place the chicken strips and onion marmalade over the top, wrap up and enjoy with a little balsamic reduction on the side.
